In 1983, a team of deeply pious scientists conducted a radical experiment in an undisclosed facility. The scientists had theorized that a human without access to any senses or ways to perceive stimuli would be able to perceive the presence of God. They believed that the five senses clouded our awareness of eternity, and without them, a human could actually establish contact with God by thought. An elderly man who claimed to have “nothing left to live for” was the only test subject to volunteer. To purge him of all his senses, the scientists performed a complex operation in which every sensory nerve connection to the brain was surgically severed. Although the test subject retained full muscular function, he could not see, hear, taste, smell, or feel. With no possible way to communicate with or even sense the outside world, he was alone with his thoughts.
Scientists monitored him as he spoke aloud about his state of mind in jumbled, slurred sentences that he couldn’t even hear. After four days, the man claimed to be hearing hushed, unintelligible voices in his head. Assuming it was an onset of psychosis, the scientists paid little attention to the man’s concerns.
Two days later, the man cried that he could hear his dead wife speaking with him, and even more, he could communicate back. The scientists were intrigued, but were not convinced until the subject started naming dead relatives of the scientists. He repeated personal information to the scientists that only their dead spouses and parents would have known. At this point, a sizable portion of scientists left the study.
After a week of conversing with the deceased through his thoughts, the subject became distressed, saying the voices were overwhelming. In every waking moment, his consciousness was bombarded by hundreds of voices that refused to leave him alone. He frequently threw himself against the wall, trying to elicit a pain response. He begged the scientists for sedatives, so he could escape the voices by sleeping. This tactic worked for three days, until he started having severe night terrors. The subject repeatedly said that he could see and hear the deceased in his dreams.
Only a day later, the subject began to scream and claw at his non-functional eyes, hoping to sense something in the physical world. The hysterical subject now said the voices of the dead were deafening and hostile, speaking of hell and the end of the world. At one point, he yelled “No heaven, no forgiveness” for five hours straight. He continually begged to be killed, but the scientists were convinced that he was close to establishing contact with God.
After another day, the subject could no longer form coherent sentences. Seemingly mad, he started to bite off chunks of flesh from his arm. The scientists rushed into the test chamber and restrained him to a table so he could not kill himself. After a few hours of being tied down, the subject halted his struggling and screaming. He stared blankly at the ceiling as teardrops silently streaked across his face. For two weeks, the subject had to be manually rehydrated due to the constant crying. Eventually, he turned his head and, despite his blindness, made focused eye contact with a scientist for the first time in the study. He whispered “I have spoken with God, and he has abandoned us” and his vital signs stopped. There was no apparent cause of death.
Could read this a million times over
that is the most amazing and interesting thing I have ever read
That is by far the most intriguing thing I have ever read in my life.
I’m a 17 year old white guy living in middle class America. I’ve never exactly been a supporter of feminism because that kind of thing has never really affected me personally. I don’t notice it and I don’t care about it. But in nine minutes this video has made what is truly a serious problem extremely apparent. Those “why I need feminism” posts or those slut-shaming or rape culture campaigns never convince me of anything. But this video actually did I think.
tl;dr This video kicks ass, just watch it.
This is the most amazing thing I’ve seen all year and every person should see this
TYPICAL YOUTUBER WHITE BOYS SPEAKING THE ACTUAL TRUTH AND NOT BEING DICKS AND WOW WHAT IS THIS I HAD TO WATCH IT TWICE TO MAKE SURE I WASN’T IMAGINING THINGS WOW
Man, I was worried that they were going to take this in a bad direction, but their single biggest point was something that they kinda concluded towards the end of the video, like they didn’t plan on actually saying this one line: “Really nice guys don’t call themselves Nice Guys.” Wonderful.
Guys who are claiming to be nice guys are usually looking for something in return so they’re not genuinely being nice.
THATS IT I FOUND MY HUSBAND THE SEARCH IS OVER HERE HE IS, WORLD
THE ANSWER IS NO UNLESS YOU ARE THIS MAN
No in all seriousness though, I’m so glad to hear men acknowledge this.
You aren’t single because you’re “too nice.” You’re single because you’re an entitled, passive-aggressive piece of shit who thinks that women owe you sex for treating them like people. You’re even more of a jerk than the guys you whine about, but too much of a delusional coward to own up to it.
You are not nice. You are a predator. There’s this thing called coercive rape, it’s when you use guilt or other non-physical means to corner somebody into sleeping with you. And guess what, you “nice guys” thrive off of that tactic. But nah you held the door open for her so you totally earned the right to stick your dick in her. Such a gentleman oh yes.
Fuck you. Except not, because you don’t deserve to ever get laid. Prick.
If any of you are not going to watch this because of what you think it will contain, I will assure you that this is the best and these guys get it.
